PARSIPPANY, N.J., May 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Actavis, Inc. (NYSE: ACT) today reported net revenue increased 24 percent to $1.90 billion for the first quarter 2013, compared to $1.52 billion in the first quarter 2012. On a non-GAAP basis, diluted earnings per share for the first quarter 2013 was $1.99, compared to $1.64 per diluted share in the first quarter 2012, an increase of 21 percent.  GAAP earnings (loss) per share for the first quarter 2013 was ($0.79), compared to $0.43 per diluted share in the prior year period. The current quarter loss for GAAP purposes includes $270 million, or $1.77 per share, of charges related to the acquisitions of the legacy Actavis Group in November of 2012 and Uteron Pharma SA in January of 2013. 

For the first quarter 2013, adjusted EBITDA was $463.6 million, compared to $367.3 million for the first quarter 2012.   Cash and marketable securities were $337.4 million as of March 31, 2013.

"The new Actavis is off to a strong start in 2013, and as a result, we are increasing our 2013 forecast based on the strong performance and execution against our objectives to date," said Paul Bisaro, President and CEO. 

"Actavis Pharma launched a number of new products in the U.S. during the quarter, including a generic version of Suboxone® sublingual tablets and in April launched an authorized generic version of Zovirax® ointment 5%. We also announced patent settlements for generic versions of Crestor®, Exalgo®, Ziana®,  Zyclara®, Intuniv® and the abuse deterrent version of OxyContin®, ensuring consumers will benefit from entry of these products prior to patent expiry. We experienced strong growth in our markets outside of the U.S., with notable launches in our international markets including generic Singulair® in multiple European markets and the successful patent challenge of generic Crestor® in Australia."

"In our Actavis Specialty Brands business, we experienced growth from U.S. sales of key promoted products including Generess® Fe, Rapaflo®,  Crinone® and Androderm®. We also continued to build our Specialty Brands pipeline for future growth.  In January, we acquired Uteron Pharma SA which significantly enhanced our Specialty Brands development portfolio in Women's Health worldwide. In February, we filed our progestin-only patch contraceptive product with the FDA ahead of schedule.  In April, we announced a strategic agreement with Valeant that will maximize the commercial value of Actavis' Cordran® Tape and Valeant's Zovirax® cream 5% through co-promotion agreements and earlier this week we licensed in Metronidazole 1.3% Vaginal Gel, capitalizing on the commercial reach of our specialty brand sales force," Bisaro continued.

"As a result of the strong performance of our global businesses during the first quarter, we are now increasing our forecast for 2013 Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share in the range of $8.10 - $8.50, representing growth of 35 to 42 percent over 2012," concluded Bisaro.

Actavis Pharma net revenue, which consists of sales of generics, branded generics and OTC products in the Americas (United States, Canada and Latin America), Europe (Europe, Russia, CIS and Turkey), and the Middle East, Africa, Australia and Asia Pacific (collectively, MEAAP), for the first quarter 2013 increased 37 percent to $1.5 billion primarily due to the acquisition of the Actavis Group in late 2012.  First quarter international net revenue was $608.6 million, up 254 percent from the prior year, primarily as a result of the inclusion of legacy Actavis product sales.  This increase was offset in part by lower sales of the generic version of Lipitor® due to the loss of exclusivity in 2012.

Actavis Pharma R&D investment for the first quarter 2013 increased to $98.8 million and selling and marketing expenses for the first quarter 2013 increased to $159.3 million primarily as a result of the inclusion of legacy Actavis results.

Actavis Pharma's adjusted gross margin increased from 45.1 percent in the first quarter of 2012 to 50.7 percent in the first quarter of 2013, primarily due to the distribution of Lidoderm® and increased margins on our generic version of Concerta® as a result of our contractual arrangement with Ortho-McNeil-Janssen. The prior year gross margin was negatively impacted by higher sales of generic Lipitor® at lower margins.

Actavis Specialty Brands net revenue increased 19 percent to $130.7 million in the first quarter. The increase was primarily due to higher sales of key promoted products including Generess® Fe, Rapaflo®, Crinone® and Androderm® and the addition of Kadian®, which was acquired with the legacy Actavis Group. 

Actavis Specialty Brands R&D investment in the first quarter was $33.3 million.  Actavis Specialty Brands selling and marketing expenses decreased by $4.1 million to $43.6 million in the first quarter, primarily due to lower U.S. field force support costs and product promotional spend.

Actavis Specialty Brands segment gross margin for the first quarter 2013 increased to 77.2 percent, compared to 76.5 percent in the first quarter of 2012.

Anda Distribution segment net revenue for the first quarter 2013 decreased 23 percent to $231.0 million compared to $298.6 million in the first quarter 2012 due to lower chain sales and fewer new third-party product launches compared to the prior year period. Anda Distribution segment revenue consists only of sales of third-party products and excludes sales of Actavis' brand and generic products.

Anda Distribution segment gross margin increased approximately 4 percentage points to 15.8 percent in the first quarter of 2013, primarily due to lower chain sales in the current year.

Other Operating Expenses
Consolidated GAAP general and administrative expenses were $185.8 million in the first quarter 2013, an increase of $21.4 million from the first quarter 2012 as a result of the acquisition, integration and restructuring charges associated with the acquisitions of Actavis and Uteron and higher expenses associated with the addition of the legacy Actavis business. General and administrative expenses in the prior year were impacted by a $59.8 million litigation charge primarily related to the Company's drug pricing litigation.

Amortization expense for the first quarter 2013 was $158.4 million, compared to $131.9 million in first quarter 2012.

2013 Financial Outlook 
Actavis' estimates are based on actual results for the first quarter of 2013 and management's current belief about prescription trends, pricing levels, inventory levels and the anticipated timing of future product launches and events. 

Actavis estimates total net revenue for 2013 of approximately $8.1 billion.

  • Total Actavis Pharma segment revenue of between $6.3 billion and $6.5 billion.
  • Total Actavis Specialty Brands segment revenue of between $550 million and $600 million.
  • Total Anda Distribution segment revenue of between $1.0 billion and $1.2 billion.
  • Adjusted non-GAAP earnings for 2013 is expected to be between $8.10 and $8.50 per diluted share.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for 2013 is expected to be between $1.95 billion and $2.03 billion.

The reconciliation table is based in part on management's estimate of non-GAAP net income for the year ending December 31, 2013.  Actavis expects certain known GAAP charges for 2013, as presented in the schedule above.  Other GAAP charges that may be excluded from non-GAAP net income are possible, but their amounts are dependent on numerous factors that we currently cannot ascertain with sufficient certainty or are presently unknown.  These GAAP charges are dependent upon future events and valuations that have not yet been performed.

The reconciliation table is based in part on management's estimate of adjusted EBITDA for the year ending December 31, 2013.  Actavis expects certain known GAAP charges for 2013, as presented in the schedule above.  Other GAAP charges that may be excluded from estimated EBITDA are possible, but their amounts are dependent on numerous factors that we currently cannot ascertain with sufficient certainty or are presently unknown.  These GAAP charges are dependent upon future events and valuations that have not yet been performed.
